Pros

Money is great. Benefits are great. They give you a lot of hope to a bright career. They are very innovative,but oddly everything flops. Bonuses can be great and the vacation time is adequate. They prepare you to take on the world and their information is top notch.

Cons

The hope ends quickly. Management is weak at best. They are constantly changing and most cases its to the betterment of those in the office. This is a market that has been declining for the last 10 years at a rate of 3%, due the math many will not retire here. Number two company with a large gap between number one.

Advice to Management

You have the best sales group out there, quit telling them that and show them.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Hands down the people you work with
    - Benefits, company car, monthly reimbursements
    - Long-term strategic vision
    - Culture of gratitude

    Cons

    - In Field Trade Marketing, home office is pushing too many initiatives all at once
    - Like any large organization, the optics of your work may be more important than the actual work you do. Can't blame anybody, the evaluation process is tough when you rarely work with the people who are judging you
    - Very limited opportunities to move across functions or up the ladder. NEED TO BE MOBILE

    Advice to Management

    We have great brands, and field trade marketing needs the time to implement initiatives so we can move the business forward.

    If I was an SD, AVP or higher, I would institute a system to garner anonymous feedback from TMs. When you come out to the field, TMs are out to impress you, not show you the actual struggles. This is causing a massive disconnect between our execution strategy and the reality of the field.

    You want a coaching culture, walk the walk, don't just talk the talk. HONEST feedback is what you need to grow the business. You want to be market leaders, go the extra mile and listen to your TMs.
